With "flicker", do you mean it (the image of the pdf) was constantly
resizing, or it was disappearing and reappearing?
Also, is this reproducible? I.e., if you open the same pdf, go to the
same page, etc., and click "Fit to Width" again, does it flicker/crash

Strange, but good ;).

I think there has been an issue about this (or something similar)
before, but I haven't been able to reproduce this, so I didn't find the
origin of the problem.
Anyway, Charlie and I are currently working on a revamp of the pdf
previewer which will internally work a little differently than the
current one. Hopefully, that will solve your issue automatically.
